HC Deb 23 February 1977 vol 926 c594W
Mr. Kinnock

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will give the number of instruments signed by him and his predecessor and not debated by the House since March 1974.

Mr. John Silkin

Since March 1974 the number of statutory instruments signed by myself and my predecessor, but not debated, is 224. This figure includes instruments also signed by other Ministers but excludes those signed by myself and my predecessor for which other Ministers were primarily responsible.
